It all depends on the gin, and the tonic! I’ve recently discovered Poachers’ Rosemary and Orange tonic and it is stunning with the small batch gin that Aldi sell. In Spain I discovered gin sets which contain cardamon pods, red pepper corns, dried hibiscus flowers, and juniper berries. Grapefruit and hibiscus is fantastic in Sipsmith gin with a good, dry, india tonic.
With Gunpowder Gin, I love a thick wedge of grapefruit – it helps bring out the flavours! With Hendricks, it’s gotta be cucumber while dry gone I’ve found are best muddled with lemon juice, bitters and a bit of sugar. Sharp but VERY good. Dingle Gin is actually really good with Diet 7up (try before you judge).
Depends on each gin, but I like to keep it simple, a rich botanical gin, mixed with Indian fever tree tonic, garnish with a squeeze of lime before being dropped in, with lots of ice to avoid diluting, all put in a tall baloon glass to enhance the aromas as you sip, oh and a few juniper berries to look extra cool!
I love Gin poured over lots and lots of ice with a clementine, halved, gently squeezed and half a lime also gently squeezed! Delicious with elderflower tonic but also with regular tonic too! Yum!
my favorite will remain my self mixed martini shaken in crushed ice with olive (yes sorry i do like the vermouth)
but for pure gin i’ve massively enjoyed dingle gin with just a hint of citrus (lime seems to work best i find)
for xmas we make our own xmas gin by adding currants cinnamon star anise orange peel and demarra sugar to a bottle several months before, it disappears fast once opened but goes so well with a few friends and a warm fire
My absolute favourite is Brockmans gin, in a copa glass, 4 or 5 chunks of large ice swirled around the glass to cool it.
Before adding some chopped raspberries and blueberries, then slowly pouring over a large measure of Brockmans, then topped off with Poachers Tonic.
My little.piece of heaven.
My favorite gin and tonic experience all boils down to the provenance, IE to within two miles of my own gaff! My dad’s homemade Dublin sloe gin, tonic, lots of ice, and botanicals from my own back garden – a good wodge of rosemary is the current favorite (but it changes from season to season). Nom!
Congratulations, Saoirse! Your home made gin took the prize. I’ll be in touch during the week to organise your tickets.
Wahey! Thanks a million Proper Food. Looking forward to the one-woman oyster festival that will be me. Ooh YEAH!
